 Comodo Internet Security Premium v8.4
Keep hackers locked firmly out of your PC

Comodo Internet Security Premium 8 is a collection of powerful tools which aims to keep your PC safe from even the very latest in malware threats.

The suite includes a strong antivirus engine and smart firewall. Comodo's "Defense+" system monitors program activities, looking for malware-like behaviour. The virtual desktop provides an isolated environment where you can run programs, or browse the web, without any risk to your system. And URL filtering keeps you safe by blocking access to malicious sites.

Most of this works entirely automatically, and so novice users can simply carry on using their PC just as they did before.

But if you need more control, Comodo Internet Security Premium has plenty to explore. You can monitor process activity in an extended Task Manager, or Comodo's Killswitch; there's a configurable sandbox for running suspect applications; a versatile Host Intrusion Protection System helps you define exactly what programs can (and can't) do on your system, and a host of settings and options ensure the program works exactly as you'd like.

New features this time include an auto-sandboxing policy, which by default keeps dubious programs isolated from your PC.

If this doesn't suit your needs, no problem: it's now possible to set up your own auto-sandboxing rules, using parameters like file reputation and origin.

Comodo Internet Security 8 now takes advantage of hardware virtualisation when available, allowing the program to operate at the hypervisor level. An improved Viruscope makes it easier to monitor your system for unwanted applications. Comodo Internet Security logs events to the Windows Event Logs, useful when you're troubleshooting.

This all comes packaged in a flat-look interface, which has also been redesigned to simplify navigation.

Note that the Premium version is free. You can upgrade to Pro, Complete and Plus versions, with additional functionality such as a virus guarantee and much more.

What's new in build 8.4?

- New. Extended "File Downloaders" file group.
- New. Website Filtering browser signatures have become updatable.
- Improved. Yahoo! installation offer is not shown during CIS/CAV paid packages' updates anymore.
- Improved. 'Browser Protection' feature is enabled by default upon clean install
​- Fixed. Google Chrome and Internet Explorer crash upon closing when run in Sandbox

Verdict:

Comodo 8 isn't a mjaor upgrade, but the package still has plenty of security tools to explore, and experts will appreciate the new sandboxing flexibility.

The best in both free and paid category. The UI of 6 needs some getting used to but other wise under the hood, rock solid engine. Kudos to Comodo team.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.10

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's new in 2.16.10?

• When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once (iOS 8+)
• Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+)
• Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+)
• A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
• Chats you frequently contact now appear when forwarding or sharing messages 
• A new quick forward button on photos and videos in chats
• When taking photos or videos, double tap your screen to switch between the front and rear cameras
